The Last King of Scotland

Giles Foden

I was sad to discover that The Last King Of Scotland is a piece of fiction. Read it anyway. The plot is so unbelievable as to be highly believable. Picking up speed as the madness of dictator Idi Amin spins out, young Dr. Nicholas Garrigan is drawn into war, sickness and a fantasy world created by a madman. Excellent, enthralling read.
